A block of ice measuring 40 inches long, 20 inches wide, and 10 inches deep weighs 300 pounds!

How these massive blocks of pure ice will be arriving and made available for the 2nd Annual Kiwanis Holiday Lights Ice Sculpting Contest this weekend will certainly involve a little bit of grit and a lot of Christmas spirit.

The contest starts at 5 pm both Friday and Saturday and is free to the public. The sculptors are competing for the coveted, “People’s Choice Award!”

Other Kiwanis Holiday Lights events this weekend include horse-drawn wagon rides, a visit from Santa, ice skating – bring your own skates, a warming house, reindeer, and of course the entire park is decorated with over a million and a half Holiday lights!

“Kiwanis Holiday Lights embodies Holiday Spirit. The entire event is sponsored and staffed by volunteers. Visitors are encouraged to donate money or food to the food shelf.”

I drove through the park last year by myself and enjoyed listening to Holiday music from the warmth of my car.

Very impressive event!
